A STONE'S THROW is the story of a librarian, Alicia, who goes to her husband's hometown after he is killed in a hit & run because, though they've been married for a long time, her late husband's past is a mystery to her. Cobble Cove is a sweet little town, but Alicia begins to realize that things--including her husband's death--aren't what they seem. This book is a cozy mystery--there's no sex or violence--and has a few interesting twists and turns. (I did not expect the ending.) The book starts a bit slow with lots of description, but stick around for the mystery!

A Stone’s Throw by Debbie De Louise is a suspenseful tale you make time to read and enjoy.

Alicia Fairmount visits her deceased husband’s hometown of Cobble Cove in search of in-laws she never met. Once there, peculiar happenings seem to connect to her husband’s death, and infer more questions than answers in the matter.

De Louise does a brilliant job of creating a beautiful setting. I was reminded of Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove through much of this narrative and loved every bit.

Further along, Alicia meets the residents of Cobble Cove. I had a sense of not quite knowing who to trust amongst these players.

Was Dora simply a B & B owner who gradually warms up to strangers, or did she have an interest in keeping John McKinney occupied with household tasks? Did John’s synergy with Alicia truly come from seeking love after being widowed for so long, or was he keeping her away from the answers she sought? And why was Sheila, the library director, avoiding discussion of the young employee who suddenly left Cobble Cove without much of an explanation?

The resident list is marginally longer with quirky characters you’ll feel you’ve known personally.

Three quarters into the book, the plot thickens with a shocking revelation. I had my suspicions early on, but the truth surrounding the death of Alicia’s husband, and the mystery of those involved, was a real twist. And so much better!

De Louise is a gifted story teller. I recommend A Stone’s Throw to mystery and suspense readers who enjoy taking the time to explore characters and settings within a steady-paced read.

A STONE'S THROW is a book that has something for any mystery reader to enjoy. It has cozy elements of a library cat and a family's golden retriever who sniffs out a missing person like a bloodhound. It has romance between a widow and a widower. It has a charming town with fun street names and cute cottages and a town square. There is a library and lots of mention of books we all know.There is a crabby lady who lives like a hermit, and a rude and grouchy cop. But there is a case of a hit and run resulting in murder, an arson, a case of indiscretion that resulted in two children by different fathers and an estranged family, a missing person (another murder),and more that make this so much more than a cozy mystery. Everything adds up to a most entertaining mystery book.
I appreciated the fact that the characters weren't all young 20 somethings with vapid speech. The cute town of Cobble Cove is populated with older people as happens in many small towns after youngsters move away to more exciting lives. The cast of characters range from 40's to 80's, and everyone seemed so vital and interesting that I wasn't really aware of this until the end when the town was undergoing growth and development. It was simply a delightful town full of interesting people.
Let me tell you that this book is one that had twists and unexpected turns. I think I actually gasped at one point. It was a captivating book that keeps you guessing up to the end.

Alicia’s husband Peter has died in a tragic hit and run accident. In an effort to deal with her grief, Alicia travels to Peter’s hometown (Cobble Cove) to seek out his family, whom Peter has always been vague and secretive about. Shortly after arriving, she lands a job as the town’s librarian and meets a handsome stranger named John, who takes her on a tour of Cobble Cove and introduces her to some of the town’s colorful and well-written characters. But then a tragedy requires that Alicia return home and John goes with her to lend a helping hand. Soon, Alicia begins to discover secrets about Peter’s death and learns that John may not have been very truthful with her.

De Louise makes a very strong traditional publishing debut with this novel (although this is NOT her first novel), especially considering the very well-developed and vividly described characters (even the secondary and tertiary characters are easy to envision). I enjoyed the plot twists and turns and the mystery that lingered until the very end. Although I’m not usually a fan of pro/epilogues, the end of this book was tied up nicely and answered any of the reader’s questions.

If you enjoy cozy, small-town mysterious with a romantic bend, this is the book for you.

A touch of intrigue, romance and murder, plus a mix of interesting characters in the quaint little upstate New York town of Cobble Cove and on Long Island, make this book a page-turner and a great read.

I was torn between describing this book as a romance or as a mystery. Luckily it is the best of both worlds. The descriptions and details paint a very clear picture of the people and places and makes you feel like you are standing there taking it all in. This story seems to wrap around you and draw you in to enjoy a rewarding and satisfying story. Alicia and John have chemistry from the very first time they meet and it continues to grow as the story unfolds. There are several twists that allow you to play junior detective while trying to help Alicia solve the mystery of her husband’s past and makes you question the intention of everyone she comes in contact with. I liked this story very much and recommend it to all romance readers that enjoy a little suspense.
